@ Sk8eycat - It could be replaced with "wellicity" or "wellitude."

Comment by sk8eycat on February 18, 2015 at 11:34am

Can anybody think of an effective way to get the non-word, "wellness" permanently removed from the English language?  It has been driving me crazy for years.

Even the people who issue the Banned Words list can't get rid of the damned thing.

I think my cold has broken. I wish I could say the same about the cold temperatures. It has and will be brutal outside for the month of February.                                                                    It just so happens I'm scheduled to see a nurse this afternoon regarding a "wellness exam". It's free, offered by my health insurance provider (Indiana U. Health). I think it's just their way of checking up on members, for many reasons. Hope I don't give her my cold.

Enjoy your day.

I'm like you Chris.  I don't want to be a boss or be bossed.  Equality is the best.

Yes, I remember Dot, and hope she's fine! Here's a bossless Household, very harmonious, even if the cats are fresh with me now and then - I understand a little Cat by now, but I still don't speak it.

Yes, Spud, you are most welcome!

Love the pom pom anemone! (Gosh, I have trouble with that word, both spelling and saying--and I once taught biology!)

It's not that I don't like cats--I used to own several. I simply evolved into a dog person. I have had my lab/boxer mix "Dot" now for six and a half months (shelter dog). She knows who's boss!

I'm not a dog show watcher, however. Maybe it's because I, too, don't like the sniveling little "yappers" (and I hate Yorkies).

Comment by Plinius on February 15, 2015 at 1:34am

Randall, I like dogs too! But a dog needs a boss or he/she will become boss. I don't know how to handle that so I stay at a distance. I need equals, no bosses, and I don't want to be boss.

Have you ever read any of Susan Conant's mystery novels?  They are about a woman who has 2 Malemutes, trains and shows them in obedience trials, and solves murders with the help of the dogs.  Her descriptions of the dogs' behavior are funny, but some of the mysteries are gruesome.  One involves a puppy mill, and I have never been able to bring myself to re-read it.

I think I posted Oso on another discussion, but he is SO beautiful!  A friend bred him.  Best of Breed 2009...he was only 18 months old at the time.

Apparently tonight's AKC show was a rerun from last year or the year before, because I recognized the dog tha won Best In Show...Banana Joe, and his owner/handler said he was retiring after this win.  The 2015 AKC show starts MONDAY night.  I do SO want to see a Northern breed win, just once, dammit!  I am NOT fond of little yappy dogs. 

D'ruther see a wolf or a coyote win instead of another breed of Terror, and coyotes scare me.  An American Foxhound would be great, too.
